Reviews and pictures of actress Jenny Runacre naked in "Jubilee" and "The Final Programme".
Born: 1943 Country: United Kingdom
Not exactly a beautiful actress, but strikingly handsome and with a weighty screen presence, she is the type of performer who combines feminist activism with an eagerness to strip naked in artsy semi-pornographic trash.
Jenny Runacre (born 18 August 1946) is a South African-born English actress. Runacre was born in Cape Town, South Africa. She moved to London as a child, attended the Actors' Workshop there, and trained in the Stanislavski System. While attending the Actors' Workshop, Runacre was approached by fellow student (and future agent) Tom Busby, who was working as a runner for an American film production that was seeking fledgling English actresses to play opposite John Cassavetes in Husbands, a film to be shot the following year in London. The young actress auditioned with Cassavetes, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk, and was told six weeks later that she was being offered the part of Mary Tynan in the film. Runacre accepted the offer and Husbands became her first important film role. Runacre then joined the original London cast of Oh! Calcutta!. Runacre left the cast after a year and starred in such films as Pier Paolo Pasolini's The Canterbury Tales, John Huston's The Mackintosh Man, Robert Fuest's The Final Programme, Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger, and Derek Jarman's Jubilee (in which she starred as Elizabeth I and "Bod"). She was active in the theatre as well as on British television, including a part in the noted series Brideshead Revisited, playing Brenda Champion. Runacre focused on higher education in the 1990s. She has a Master's in Fine Art Practice from Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design. She is currently a lecturer in residence in art, and has worked in installation art and experimental filmmaking. In 2007 Runacre directed Gareth Parker and Andrew Swann's Frozen, which was nominated for Best Direction, Best Writing and Best Overall Production in the LOST Theatre Festival. The production, starring Jack Bowman (Crossroads) and Josephine Hart came second overall. Runacre also directed the Wireless Theatre Company's audio adaption of Frozen after its successful stage run, featuring the original cast. Most recently Jenny appeared in John Maybury's The Edge of Love released summer 2008. snippet from Wikipedia

The climax to a dystopian sci-fi fantasy with a mixed though cultish reputation, this is a classic example of the non-gratuitous sex scene; it is absolutely vital to the plot that Jenny and protagonist Jon Finch have it away like this. I won't actually go into the plot by the way, there's plenty of exposition in the dialogue if you need it (it's really remarkably helpful). But wait - what if everything goes horribly wrong?!
Jenny's impressive body vies for top billing with her spectacular outfit - the sort of frilly nightwear for girls that was left behind in the early 'seventies, last seen being worn in a concert at the Hammersmith Odeon by Freddie Mercury I believe.

# Jubilee (Derek Jarman, UK, 1978) (featuring Jenny Runacre as Queen Elizabeth I / Bod aged 35)
This violent punk fantasy from camp old sourpuss Derek Jarman was something of a low point for Jenny's career. Here she is naked except for a crown while her gang (a really tough gang with Toyah Willcox in it) strangles a hapless young fornicator in plastic sheeting. But what really pushes this scene into decadence is Jenny's gorging herself on sugarpuffs.
